ReAtriRAt). 




ITH the kind permission of Dr. Douglas Hyde, 
this folk-tale is reproduced with a complete 
vocabulary of all the words in the text. It is 
intended chiefly for those who are little more 
than mere beginners in the study of Irish, and aims, by 
enlivening their work, to stimulate their zeal. 

It may be used with profit by teachers to impart to theii 
pupils a practical knowledge of Irish pronunciation. F3f this 
purpose the teacher should read part of it aloud for his pupils, 
getting them to repeat it after him, and correcting errors whec 
they occur. Simple questions on the subject matter should be 
addressed in Irish to the pupils, who will answer in the word*, 
of the text. An example will illustrate. Let us suppose that 
teachers and pupils have read the first paragraph in the tale 
The teacher asks such questions as the following : 

CÁ ruMb .an jre^rv fo 1 n-a corrm^i-fje? TI*mo s^b^lc^f mór 
Ai£e ? Tl^ib f é póf ca ? Tl^ib Aon cl^nn ai^e ? C14 mesv 
Dume? Oa an c-^mm oi tnpru ? Cm tu^ ^n r-^inm fir 
uippi ? etc. 

This system will lead in a short time to a iair conversational 
knowledge of irish. It has been practised by the Editor with 
very satisfactory results. Fi HI 7
